yesterday went w/my son to 1st area auction to look at getting 2 Ingersolls on the auction, and we did and i got a metal band saw. we got to his place to drop off the tractors and he would not open shed door. i needed help to get the saw off the truck, so he came over assist w/another tractor on the trailer. i asked what is that? he said happy fathers day early, his shed was too full now as he also got a 108 for himself. we have a great son. he knew i learned to drive tractor on an original that was my grandpa's my when dad got it, needless to say, dad sold it 45 years ago. it is not restored, but runs and is solid. it even has the reflectors on the fenders.

and it runs. the key switch was replaced w/a toggle switch and missing the hood ornament, i believe that is all. the deck is real solid, just no paint.

forgot to update all. last weekend, dropped the deck, pressure washed, drained all the oils, including the air cleaner (oh my goodness, that was bad), pulled the back cover off and used my hand to get all the sediments out (bad). new gasket, new hytran, low ash 30WT in engine and a/c, runs like a top. i have the deck all freed up for the foot lever engagement, just did not put back on yet. believe that should work now also. now just worried all the grease is off it and now will rust. but for 60 years old, looks pretty good.

I'd love to have one of those 3 pointers on my original.

I don't know that I'll ever mow with it - don't know that I won't either.

Mostly I'd like one for spotting trailers without getting out of the seat.

Todd.
